First Days of School

September often brings excitement for the First Days of School. The classrooms, teachers, and students look fresh and ready to go. The students and teachers are usually eager to be at school.  I say usually because there is always an exception to the rule.
However, September means a new start for most students and teachers. As I contemplate what the coming months will bring as a classroom teacher, I am amazed at how fast a school year can go by. It is amazing to see the growth of the students. That is why, I always loved having the students write an essay and draw/color a picture to go with the essay at the beginning of the year. Then, at the end of the year, have the students write and draw again for comparison.
Capturing the excitement of the First Days of School and keeping it throughout the school year, will take patience and skill.  It can be accomplished with support from colleagues and parents.
